I've often played games with NO effects, since clearing up all those red tiles/plates can get annoying, finding 2x2 trans-orange discs to hold fire upright is hard(my fire collection has got mixed in when it fell off my deck :( )

due to a bricklink order i have a ton of trans-clear 1x8 SW guns(the ones that have 2 studs at one end and 1 at the other, and a stud receiver on each end) which make great flying/jumping stands.

I agree with natalya, this has the spirit of a good brikwar.
the only thing I might change, except the stuff about dungans and peaches etc. is that you had a fighter but the enemy didnt have much anti air or vehicle weapons.

btw: IMO bottlenecks can be fun, but only if both armies send in their troops to hold it at all costs, for maximum carnage. you were right to recognise and execute them as cowards.

if 20 chickens can fit in a brick, how many pingpongballs does a crocodile have to eat so it can swim faster than a washing machine?

I loved it, everything was funny. Please make more.

Due to the simplicity and speed of quikwars I plan to play it more often then actual brikwars, seeing as how most of my friends that want to play it have no legos.

Which is all that matters!!

totally agreed, the point is to have fun. not to make it visually attractive to people watching the pictures.


If both are possible, then it's even better!

Looks like a good game, having fun is what matters, admittedly it might have been more visually appealing and less work to have the comments above or below the pictures, but as far as game spirit goes, it looks like you had a great game!

The only issue is...

You don't use many effects in your battle, but if you ever plan on using more of them, you should consider getting modern photo editing softwear.

Paint was good back when the world was 16 bit, but that was then, an this is now. It's now almost as pointless for image editing as notepad is for word processing (though a good pixel editor can still use paint to good effect). Google search the word "Gimp" for a decent free image editor, or you can find a modernized version of the ye olde paint (no real similarities remain, but whatever) at http://www.getpaint.net/ It's also good for image editing.
